Update #5

As we near bringing our guest-lecturing Green Driving from the Start project presentations to driver education classes, we are excited to have interviewed, trained, and retained a Dartmouth College sophomore to give presentations, mainly in the Upper Valley area of Vermont and New Hampshire!

Update #4

I am excited and at the same time humbled to have been awarded a $5,000 grant for the Green Driving from the Start project from a foundation (which wishes to remain anonymous) located in the Upper Valley that straddles Vermont and New Hampshire! This, combined with a Vermont Community Foundation mini-grant, and individual donations including those from Fundly, have reduced the current project funding goal from $17,000 down to $10,609!
